I feel so ashamed now for not trying to finish my son's gloves (granted they are gloves, not mittens). Those mitts are absolutely STELLAR!!!!!

Is there a matching hat to go with it? I think my dh would like something like that as a matching set.

Okay, I just showed these to dh, and he said he would absolutely wear them and thought that a matching hat would look great with them. So, I dare ask you now, "where's the pattern for these babies?"

The type of "hat" that I'm thinking would look great with these would be a chullo.
